  1. UC does not support Vista. Only the Collectors edition will. You DID read the System Requirements, right?
  2. I'd move the patches-download up to downloads, if I were you, and if it becomes as fast as the 'old' site was, I'd accept it. But I liked the old site, you actually had to look at it to find things, just like you actually have to read the manual to live in BC/UC/etc.

  4. quote:Originally posted by Cruis.In: When is 64bit going to be the standard? I expect it to get a big boost when people start running dual-core And I take it you can't run 64 bit windows on a current setup, you need a 64 bit motherboard or computer or chip right? A current setup these days inclused an AMD athlon 64, or a Pentium 4 with AMD's 64-bit extensions, so any current setup should work. Also all the programs for win32, will they work on win64 backwards compatible, and will people start writing programs for win64 only and not in win32 eventually? Most Win32 programs will run on Win64 because of the WOW32 (Windows On Windows) layer, just like Win32 will run Win16 programs. However, Win64 will not run 16-bit programs. Also, for programming, the biggest increases seem to be more registers, and able to store 64-bit numbers, however, most things are still 32-bit. You could have found this out on pretty much any website out there. Since when is this a computer-support-site anyway? Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag

  6. Hello, quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: when the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park..." So? Where do they park now? I don't get it? Please tell me, the suspense is killing me. And, we might get snow here. Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  7. Hello, quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: ...according to a CA court Easy solution to EULA: Get somebody else to click accept, that way they accept the EULA and you don't have to, even though it's your computer and your program. Heck, automate the process, and let the computer click the button automaticly. EULA's are not valid contracts anyway, at least here, because a contract is only valid if two parties can communicate over the terms of the contract, and since this is impossible with these accept or die-things, they are not valid.

  8. Hi, quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: So what about PC games? Why is it that most gamers are so highly resistant to this method of game distribution, especially now that broadband and CD/DVD writing technologies are so prevalent? One of the reasons why I have never been able to buy software online, is because it always requires a creditcard, and they are simply not used here (as much), or totally unavailable. For instance, I make less then half what creditcard-companies require in order to give you one. Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  9. Hello, I find Doom 3 extremely boring and not impressive at all. Sure, the details at high resolutions are better, but when you looked at that for a few hours you don't watch it anymore, and you just get frustrated with monsters attacking you all the time, from all sides, so you can't defend yourself. I've had situations where an imp took only 1 shot from the shotgun, and then another imp, at 45 degrees of the first one at the same distance, took 5-6 shots. WTF is up with that? Another thing, is that at one point you have to decide to do something, or not. But, no matter what you chose, the game just runs the same, perhaps with a different ending (don't know) but there is no indication what you should choose, or why, even if you do take the time to read all the boring logs that lay around everywhere. Also there are some websites in the logs. So, you have to quit the game, load up the site, then wait about 5 minutes for doom and your game to load so you can continue. And, probably in a few months or years the websites mentioned in the logs will be gone, so there's no point in having them in the game. My prediction is that it will sell, but word will spread over how bad it really is, and Id will probably disappear. A shame, really. Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag

You see, Resnig was going around asking what does that button do? what does that button do? And he pressed then while asking. Somehow, he managed to launch an OTS. But don't tell anyone, okay? Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  11. Oh my! That is SO smooth. I got computers in every room of the house, or at least enough to put them there, so I just got to order a few copies too! I mean the surface of them, it makes everything even smoother! And, using those, everything just looks SO much better. I can't get over it, really. I swear, everybody should have a few of those, you won't know what you'll see. Really, this is THE thing to improve your image, I'm not kidding here. If you haven't checked it out by now, take my advice, go look for yourself. I swear, if you use that, and show the results you got instead of your old stuff, everybody will love you for it. Really, everybody, even your mom and girlfriend who didn't like computers before will like the new image that you present them. It's the best thing since sliced bread, and I can't believe it isn't butter, but it isn't, and it even slides a whole lot better then that. Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  12. I think somebody who is smart enough to solve such equations wouldn't respond to ads, seeing as how most things in ads are lies anyway. Oh, sure, they have disclaimers and everything, but to me, a lie is still a lie. Which is why I ignore ads anyway. Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  13. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: whoa!!!!! Wody, where the HELL have you been?!?! Well, I've been waiting around this eehmmm 'door' for somebody to come by, for a few months, then I went to the store a lot, and got rewarded with a copy of Universal Combat, even take it to bed with me, but that's just cause I got another computer there for UC. And then I just stood here again practicing, open, close, open close, it's so fascinating. Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  14. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: hehe, I was thinking the same thing. n00bs, what can you do? Well, I can tell you. Now, please stand here. See this button? The one with Open Door? Well, let me press it for you. The one next to it with Open Airlock? Nah, that's nothing, just ignore it. It's for the door that-a-way. Anyway, now that the door is open. Just get in there. I'd come with you but I have some other things to do. Anyway, Now, I'll just press on it again, yes it closes the door. Now, I'll just press the other one, with open airlock. Bye bye, supreme commander Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag (Please note that events and names are not necessarily actual or even real)
  15. Hey, I bet this taxes every Floridian, since most americans have one or more tv's with remote-control, and a remote-control is also communications-equipment, since it communicates with the tv (it sends a signal, just like a fax sends a signal, and that's taxed too) Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  16. Hello, quote:Originally posted by jamotto: The bad thing is according to the guy who traveled there, said the wages where around $80-$100 a month. So why is that bad? You can't compare numbers like that. For instance, I get about 800 euro's a month. That's below the required minimum you need to live. However, if I could go to Thailand for instance, it would be about 30,000 baht, which is a very good income there. In short, don't compare numbers, compare what you can buy with it, and how you can live from it. Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  17. quote:Originally posted by jamotto: you also most likely have a much larger disposable income than I, so for me gas is expensiveMy income is what the government gives me, because I'm officially handicapped, so it is less then the official minimum required to live, meaning I live off about $10 a week (supposed to be $60-$70, according to them). Also, it's illegal to own a car, because of my situation. And here, public transportation now is more expensive then going by car, so the whole situation is prety grim here too. But, to me, the whole situation is not just about gas, but about oil, because oil is a finite resource, and we need it for so many other things. Same with metals, I think. So, I think we should use less electricity On the good side, I got plenty of time to Battlecruiser, all day and all night Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  18. Hi, American gas is extremely cheap too. Here in europe we pay 4-5 times the amount that americans pay, so what you pay for a gallon, is what we have to pay for a quart. So if you do want to save gas, just don't use so much Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag

  20. quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: Just look at that mug I can't wait untill spammers and virus-writers (who basically work together these days, just look at MyDoom and all the latest outbreaks before that, they were all designed to turn millions of computers into happy spam-speweing proxys) will start using these defenses. Can you see that? Sorry, I was just hired by some spammer to make this. Yes, I know i am causing billions of dollars each day in damages and lost time, space and bandwith, but I can't pay it from my allowance so you can't punish me. Makes me mad, it does.

  21. quote:Originally posted by echo: I know most of you guys build your own machines, however I am hoping someone can give me ideas or help me make decisions.Hello, If you are smart, you don't buy a machine from HP, DELL or any other brand. Why? Because you only buy a label on the outside, and junk on the inside. I often had people complain to me, and lose data, simply because something broke, and they put in a new no-name brand part in it, which made windows lose it's guts and lose years of people's documents and such. Sure, that doesn't happen all the time. But the best thing to do, is to buy brands inside the computer, so that if something breaks, you can get that fixed, and if that doesn't work out, at least buy just one replacement, that can cost you only half till 1/5th of the price that brands charge for no-name stuff. So, in short, brands inside, not outside. You will get a machine that runs faster, better, longer, and cheaper then one with a brand outside. Greetings, wouter Dijkslag
  22. Hmm.. blown up hardware? My latest thing is that I fried a AMD athlon 1Ghz, I replaced the fan and everything was fine, but after a few minutes it jumped off by itsself and that chip was a goner. Weird though, no magic smoke came out. First thing I ever burned out was a ZX Spectrum, I simply used it too much, so the cables to the keyboard (made of paper) burned out. Almost all Spectrums have this problem. Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag
  23. Hi, I feel a bit the same as Draeda, these days it seems people don't see the consequences of their actions. And also, I wanted to add something. The kind of things that happens in such institutions are not rare. They go on daily in almost every mental hospital. When you have a simple disease such as schizophrenia, or something like that, they just drug you and you can be in society, no probem, but as soon as you have anything that is not so easily identifiable, they will use any means neccesary to not cure you, but to break your personality, so they can build something from the pieces that can function in society. This institution simply doesn't try to find out what is wrong first, but just breaks a mind and builds it from the ground up. So, it is not rare at all. Greetings, Wouter Dijkslag P.S. And yes, I speak from experience, my parents put me in a mental hospital for 3 years.
